| | confused about swollen lymph nodes in pelvic area
I have had clusters of swollen lymph nodes on each side of my pelvis for several months now. I have seen my gynocologist numerous times in the last 2 and a half months. I have taken antibiotics, despite no known infections. I have also had extensive blood work tests, which show nothing alarming. My doctor doesn't seem worried, he believes that whatever the cause, it will go away on its own. Since one of the lymph nodes was tender at first, but is no longer tender, my doctor says that this is not a typical symptom of lymphoma. I have never been typical, and all of my immediate relatives have had some form of cancer, including my grandmother who died from lymphoma. I don't know a whole lot about lymphoma, and maybe that is why I am a little scared despite my doctors reassurance that it's no big deal. I would appreciate any information regarding this, and would like to know if I should insist on a biopsy or just wait 2 more months to see if time heals all?
